7:34 am
speaking of things that make you say whoa, check out this out of this world lightning storm. astronaut tim peak tweeted this video he shot thousands of miles up on the vss. peak tweeted saying amazing how much lightning hits ert in a short period of time -- earth in a short period of time. workers in houston were caught off guard when this parking garage collapsed came down on top of a skra excavator with a worker inside. he escaped without a scratch. >> you think maybe just as a precautionary measure you might have moved it before you blew it up? >> he's in that backhoe saying i wish these things moved faster. >> let's toss it over to meteorologist tim studebaker with a look at the forecast. >> we have a mix of sun and
7:35 am
well as perhaps some haze in the valley locations but the inversion not very strong. it is showing a lot of signs of weakening so i think that's a great sign. we're going to mix out some of the pollution that has been in the valleys. still pretty warm as we head into the seven-day forecast. our temperatures are not only well above average, they're now close to records today and perhaps even breaking a record tomorrow in reno. we'll have those numbers for you in a moment. 32 degrees in town with partly cloudy skies. calm winds at 5. single digits for humidity. that is a sign of things to come. we're going to be a little cooler on the eastern side of the state with highs in the 30s there and 40s western side, mostly into the 60s for the lower elevations. mix of sun and clouds. we have clouds streaming through right now but really no moisture for us out there. the storm track is still well off to the north bringing all the moisture up into washington
7:36 am
california, too, but we are still staying mainly dry within our viewing area as a result of that high pressure still in place. warm temperatures, too, maybe not so much as i mentioned for the eastern side of the state with highs in the 30s and 40s. 50s for central nevada, into the 60s for the lower elevations of western nevada. 66 in hawthorn. 61 in lovelock. up around the lake, we're also in the 50s there. so that's also a sign of the inversion is weakening. when the temperatures match between the sierra and the valleys, or the temperatures are even higher in the sierra, that's the inversion and that's what traps pollute ants into the valleys but that's not the case today. we're much warmer in the valleys than the upper elevation, 64 for your high in portula. the average is still 50 degrees for this time of year, so we're 16 degrees above average heading
7:37 am
reno-sparks, even warmer than that tomorrow. tomorrow is the warmest of the bunch. we'll cool off heading into the weekend. still well above average all the way across. tomorrow's high of 68 in reno-sparks is one degree above the record of 67 for this time of year. we'll be in the 60s all the way across the seven-day until wednesday of next week. that is our next rain chance, 40% for the valleys, 60% for the mountains, so we'll be watching for that until then, still staying dry. back over to you. let's take a look at what's trending. oklahoma schools are displaying signs warning students and parents as well that staffers could be armed. officials at an oklahoma city school district said they wanted to send a clear warning to protect against any potential attackers. the sign said, quote, please be aware that certain staff members at ok public schools can be legally armed and may use whatever force is necessary to

7:39 am
dog, beware this house is armed. i'm hoping to deter people. if that's okay there, why not at schools. >> in this context, i don't think it would work. a crazy person going in is not going to read the sign. so this will scare the kids and the parents, nothing more. >> you can go ahead and post your comments on our facebook page. coming up next, cleaning out your medicine cabinet can be confusing. we're going to help you figure
